Losing weight doesn’t have to feel like a chore. Simple changes to your lifestyle will produce results. These simple weight loss tips have been tried and tested. They might not transform your body overnight, but they will help it attain a slightly better, healthier shape in the longer term.
Most of us know that eating a little less, and exercising a little more does the trick, but people these days are very lazy to do exercise so here in this article you will learn 10 weight loss secrets
1. Drink more water
Because water is involved in many metabolic processes in your body, being dehydrated has the potential to slow your metabolism down, which can hamper weight loss. One study showed that drinking water a half hour before meals increased weight loss by 44% over 3 months
2. Make green tea your tipple
The bitter-tasting refreshment has been of growing interest for dieters because of its ability to stimulate fat oxidation. How does it work? It’s all down to the catechin polyphenols. Absent in black tea as a result of its fermentation process, catechins are thought to stimulate fat oxidation and have the potential to increase fat metabolism.
3. Use smaller plates and bowls
Trading in your huge dinner plate for a slightly smaller one is a very simple but effective weight loss tip. You can ‘fill your plate’ without breaking the rules. This can help with portion control.
4. Sleep more
Getting your eight hours shut eye is just as important as your diet and exercise regime when it comes to weight loss. In a study by the University of Leeds, 1,615 adults reported how long they slept and kept records of food intake.
Indicators of overall metabolic health such as blood pressure, blood cholesterol, blood sugar, and thyroid function were monitored, as well as weight and waist circumference recorded.
Those who slept for six hours or less a night had waists that were on average 1.1 inches (3cm) larger than those who slept for nine hours. Poor sleep is one of the strongest risk factors for weight gain, so taking care of your sleep is important
5. Go Walking
Walking when the weather’s nice is a super-easy way to keep fit, says Diane Virginias, a certified nursing assistant from New York. “I enjoy the seasons,” she says, adding that even when she’s short on time she’ll go out for a few minutes. “Even a five minute walk is a five minute walk.”
6. HAVE FRUIT TWICE A DAY
Fruit has no fat and is mostly water, so it’ll fill you up while leaving less room on your plate (and in your stomach) for high-cal fare. Don’t freak about fruit’s carb count — we’re talking the good kind of carbohydrates that contain lots of healthy fiber.
7. TURN OFF THE TV
Dining while viewing can make you take in 40 percent more calories than usual, reports a new study. And texting, driving, or any other distracting activity during a meal can also result in your eating too much. Instead, make each meal something you put on a plate and sit down to, even if you’re eating solo.
8. Eat high-fibre foods
Foods containing lots of fibre can help keep you to feel full, which is perfect for losing weight. Fibre is only found in food from plants, such as fruit and veg, oats, wholegrain bread, brown rice and pasta, and beans, peas and lentils.
9. Don’t skip breakfast
Skipping breakfast won’t help you lose weight. You could miss out on essential nutrients and you may end up snacking more throughout the day because you feel hungry.
10. Exercise a little
Are you Lazy enough to do an exercise? well I’m not saying that you should exercise really hard to lose a weight. Just do 2-5 mins daily like stretching exercise or Surya Namaskar, one of the most widely practiced and basic yoga asanas, actually focuses on various parts of the body and work wonders with weight loss. The term literally translates to sun salutation, and comprises a series of 12 different poses encompassed in one including the prayer pose, forward bend and the bhujangasana. It helps strengthen your skeletal system and ligaments. Being a great way to keep the body active, it also aids in reducing stress and anxiety. If you keep breathing in and out during the poses, it helps you lose more weight.
